New Pink Floyd release
@macg19 I saw quite a few comments on Twitter from the usual 'crowd' complaining and throwing hissy fits stating that the prism 'rainbow' was supporting gay rights. The album sleeve has the prism colors in the zero part of '50'. It's really sad.  
David Crosby R.I.P.
RIP David Crosby. So many great folks have left us this year and it's only January!   
Buyer anxiety
Always trust your gut. That's a NO for me too.  
After fifty years… amazing. What high end audio can be.
@whart I agree with you regarding the younger generation and their music, gear, etc. Us older folks had to 'shop' for music back in the day and we had more access to hifi shops (at least here in VA). It took effort to go out and hunt down import v... 
HELP!!!! Newbie looking for a decent 2 channel power amp in the $1,000 range
Maybe a slightly used (or demo) Odyssey Stratos amplifier?

@ghdprentice As for my reference system, I started going through different gear about 3 years ago---I played around with NAD, Bel Canto, Modwright, McIntosh, Naim, Focal and a few others but ended up getting a Luxman 505uxii integrated, Dynaudio S...

Great thread---I've been in the audiophile world for about 30 years. My first 10-15 years was a swap fest with different gear, etc, since I had close friends at a local hifi shop. Then I settled down with my older system (now vintage) for quite a ...

Four Hour Tube Amp Warm-Up
That seems rather long---that wouldn't cut it for me since I rarely listen to my music for 4 hours straight. I don't have tubes but my Sugden A21 sounds pretty sweet after about 15-20 mins.  
I have found out why new cables and tweaks actually work!
I always feel better after a shower. 😉 😁  
Pure Class-A Amp under $2000 (USED)
@darkknight8586 I'm using Tekton Lore Reference but I also use Dynaudio Special 40s---the S40s love the Sugden despite it being being only 23 wpc. They appreciate the high current from the A21. Hope this helps.  
Pure Class-A Amp under $2000 (USED)
Perhaps look at for a Sugden A21 Signature or SE demo unit. I went through Goldprint Audio and got a demo A21 at a good price--great customer service as well. The A21 is pure class A---super sweet sound, 23 wpc.  
Whats playing on your system today?
Eurthymics - Savage. Great album from 1987--very experimental for them.
